How do I know the trader has the appropriate qualifications/ licences/certificates etc that they require to trade?

BackIt is important to choose a service provider carefully, ensuring they have the correct licences required and qualifications to work to ensure you are receiving a high quality of service.

In each country the requirements to trade in certain industries may vary.

Requirements in one country may not be the same in another.  Before choosing your service provider check whether they are obliged to hold a licence or equivalent to trade, and whom regulates this. You can find detailed information on each of the country and service pages and check the relevant bodies who may be able to provide this information for you.

If you cannot find the information that you require please feel free to contact us and we will source this for you.
